Trailing suction hopper dredger BN348 launched

8 December 2021

The first major milestone for the BN348 trailing suction hopper dredger was celebrated on 7 December when this impressive ship was launched at Thecla Bodewes Shipyards in Kampen, just after 12 noon. This is the second dredger that was built for De Hoop Terneuzen. Due to Covid measures, the Kampen shipyard was closed to visitors, but the launching could be followed via a livestream.

BN347 TSHD Anchorage was completed last year and is being used intensively. Its sister ship BN348 will be ready for commissioning next spring.
